World Oceans Day

I watched “The Meg” over the weekend, so when I saw this, I thought “cool” lol.

World Oceans Day is celebrated on 8 June 2022. Each year on World Oceans Day we raise awareness about ending overfishing and protecting our oceans.

This year’s United Nations World Oceans Day, on 8 June 2022, will highlight the theme Revitalization: Collective Action for the Ocean. This is the first hybrid celebration of the annual event, hosted in-person at the UN Headquarters in New York and broadcast live.

The Seven Seas include the Arctic, North Atlantic, South Atlantic, North Pacific, South Pacific, Indian, and Southern oceans. I am first generation Australia, so we are pretty surrounded by water, haha.

I have an up and down relationship with the Ocean in particular, when I was little I lived really close to the beach, basically across the road from it. My Dad freaked out about the mortgage, and didn’t want pay for one, so we lost a house that is now worth OVER a millions dollars … spewing …

Anyway, letting that go…Just … I once had this “I am Queen of the Ocean relationship” until I was dunked four times in a row by it. Basically, I nearly drowned. Never really trusted it again, a few years ago now though. I went “swimming” with the dolphins. You go out on a boat, into the ocean and you snorkel, hold onto with a rope. You can see the dolphins in their natural habit.

It was cool, but also the weirdest feeling. It felt, weirdly, claustrophobic. Even though we were in the Ocean, it felt claustrophobic. It was a really odd feeling, lol. Completely amazing, but odd, lol

Favourite Places

27…My favourite place in my city….

I knew instantly in my head where my favourite place is in my city, my head honestly went straight there. I am very lucky in that there are some extremely beautiful beach towns and places and in my city. I am actually organising a room at one of these places for New Years. It’ll be Summer and they have fireworks on the beach we’re going too. We haven’t booked the rooms yet, but when tax time happens. I’m hoping to have enough money to book them (I should). We have some completely gorgeous beach towns, they are probably not as well known as Queensland, but every Summer time (Dec-Feb here) the beach towns are always booked.

Also though not being Queensland is something to be grateful for, because unlike a lot of the other major cities in Australia. You can plan things in the last couple of months. Rather than needing to organise your holidays nearly a year in advance. I went to Sydney for New Years once and my best raved how great it is on New Years…I honestly didn’t find that to be true. It was overcrowded and no space to sit and then trying to get home…It took nearly 3 hours to travel 30 minutes usually, just for a 15 minute firework display on the Sydney Harbor Bridge. That’s ridiculous and there is definitely not enough public toilets in the mean time either.

Swimming with Dolphins

What could be more magical that swimming with Dolphins! Well…That’s what I did this weekend and it was definitely magical!

This is something I think everyone should do! The experience is completely surreal, putting your head into the ocean and watching the Dolphins swim just beneath you is something I will never forget. It was like watching a movie and you realise what their world is…and it is their world! Something I have come to really realise!

It was really like being in a Disney film and I actually had a thought while looking at the Dolphins swimming underneath and thinking someone really did there research into the “Little Mermaid” because that is kind of what it felt like. It did make me wonder if they actually based a lot of Ariel on Dolphins. Watching them swim underneath in the ocean and then come up to be with us, almost felt it was the perfect “Part of their World” song.
